Overview

The Division of General Medical Disciplines in the Department of Medicine, Occupational Health and Surgical Anatomy at Stanford University School of Medicine

This CME activity focuses on providing a biomechanical and anatomic framework for physicians to understand musculoskeletal medicine, providing a clinical paradigm and confidence that clinicians can apply to all musculoskeletal injury care, reducing referral needs, improving recovery timeframes, and reducing condition relapse potential. Interactive Case scenarios, video demonstrations of exam techniques, and computer modeling will augment the didactic material. Patient education tools will be accessible online for reference in an effort to foster further learning and patient independent recovery.

Intended Audience

This course is designed for physicians in family practice, primary care, general surgery, internal medicine, neurology, emergency medicine/ urgent care, as well as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and allied health professionals.

Accreditation

The Stanford University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Stanford University School of Medicine designates this enduring material for a maximum of 2.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

  • Evaluate a patient for basic musculoskeletal conditions associated with posture, ergonomics and biomechanics.
  • Reduce prescription of narcotic pain medications while enhancing utilization of physical modalities (physical therapy, acupuncture, myofascial or active release techniques) through integration of biomechanical- and trigger-point-based diagnostic approaches.
  • Differentiate between common musculoskeletal conditions, based on patient history and mechanism of injury to target the root cause of pain and dysfunction.
  • Manage musculoskeletal injuries through employing imaging studies as tools to guide treatment and referrals.
  • Educate patients regarding performance of independent home exercises, additionally gaining an online stretching source for patient referral.

Lamentablemente, las personas de uno o más de los siguientes países o regiones no podrán registrarse para este curso: Irán, Cuba y la región de Crimea en Ucrania. Si bien edX consiguió licencias de la Oficina de Control de Activos Extranjeros de los EE. UU. (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC) para ofrecer nuestros cursos a personas en estos países y regiones, las licencias que hemos recibido no son lo suficientemente amplias como para permitirnos dictar este curso en todas las ubicaciones. edX lamenta profundamente que las sanciones estadounidenses impidan que ofrezcamos todos nuestros cursos a cualquier persona, sin importar dónde viva.
